If you have youngsters in tow, then the BESA Mums, Dads and Tots groups are here to support your transition and time here. They are a warm welcoming group, helping you and your kids to get settled as quickly as possible. The tots groups primarily focus on the preschool 0-5 age group, but can also include anyone with slightly older children who is looking for playdates in the holidays.
